My name's Barbara Dieu, or Bee as people call me online. I teach English as a Foreign Language at the Franco-Brazilian school in Sao Paulo, Brazil and I am recording this using Audacity. The music that you hear at the beginning comes from Gilberto Gil's site: http://gilbertogil.com.br . He is our Minister of Culture and also a famous musician, a pioneer at publishing songs under the Creative Commons License and on his site called (Banda Larga) Broadband you can find a series of remixes based on his songs so you can create your own re-mix or mash-up like I'm doing now.
update 28/07: I have added an explanation of the recording process here.
update 29/07: I have added the outdated code here for the flash button instead of uploading the mp3 file again to the audio content area so as not to encumber the webcastacademy server. I had to switch this text from WYSIWYG to text editor so as to place the code.
hmmm, the button appears but the sound does not come out. Checking the html code. Still does not play...argh. Now , where is it that I had found that code? Ok..found my mistake..I added an extra pair of inverted commas after the src, argh.
If you're like me and like to add a little musical action to your recordings, I'd suggest clicking over to splicemusic.com to create your own sampled MP3 files. I'll post one as soon as it's ready...but not before it's time.
